yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 75cl corked. It’s a more or less black one, topped by a dense, beige head. Chocolate, roasted malts, caramel notes, some coffee hints, licorice notes and a hint of soy sauce. Really nice flavor with some alcohol warmth in addition to chocolate, coffee and caramel. Bitterness towards the end, both of the hoppy and the roasted malt kind. Full body, with a soft carbonation and a nice warming feeling. A quite wonderful one, wouldn’t mind drinking more of this. 121109

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich chocolate, coffee, roast malt and hops. Nice and creamy. Wonderful to taste a genuinely great imp stout that is this good without being barrel aged. Awesome!

roasty, dry, astringent, and bitter finish. My kind of stout, chocolate, bittersweet, great body and drinkability.

Opaque black beer. Light palate for a RIS, a little dry, quite soft and airy. Not roasty or bitter but a ton of dark malt. Mild lactose. Subtle hint of dark fruits. Mild chocolate and coffee in the finish. A nice RIS but for me doesn’t reach that luxuriant feel and flavour of the best. A bit nit picky because this is a good beer!

From a 750ml bottle. Poured a medium black-brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, coffee/espresso, touch of hop note. Flavor was that same roasted malt, coffee goodness. Enjoyable, but lacking something for me.
